Description

From the manor in the idyllic Lövstabruk, this section goes westward, ending by Västland Church.
Once you’ve walked a short distance, you’ll come across some old wells, cellars and fruit trees – the remains of the village of Knuters. Along forest paths and across bogs, you’ll reach Ӧverlövsta on the other side of River Strömarån, where logs used to be driven. Then, the trail follows a gravel road across fields and through forests for 2.5 kilometres before you reach rest spot Svenbo (with a wind shelter). You’ll continue on a forest path that eventually leads you to the River Tämnarån’s valley by Västland. Towards the end, you’ll pass the Lake Barsjön, a lovely forest lake surrounded by 200-year-old pines.

Once in Västland, you can take a little detour to a rest spot with a wind shelter, just by River Tämnarån.

Difficulty level: Medium, forest paths, a few kilometres on roads.
